MG Club/Triumph Club
May 24, 2014

10am - 12pm

What an awesome day for a 'Clubstravaganza' Car Show at Cardone & Daughter! In the morning we welcomed the MG and Triumph clubs for coffee and donuts (provided,as always, by Beach Donut Shop of Clinton). Then at noon, the Jaguar and Thunderbird clubs rolled in for burgers and dogs on the grill. The weather held up for us with the exception of a few clouds closer to the end of the day, and we were thrilled to have what felt like our first taste of summer this year, surrounded by great people and their beautiful cars. We would also like to extend a huge "THANK YOU!" to all who brought non-perishables for our permanent donation box (located in our main office) for the Shoreline Soup Kitchens and Pantries! You guys rock!

Open Shop
April 26, 2014

including a 1972 Citroen SM.  If you missed this event, please join us at one of our other shop events this season!

Parent/Teen Automotive Know-How
March 19, 2014

6:30 - 8:30pm

In partnership with The Clinton Youth & Family Service Bureau, we hosted a workshop for teen drivers AND their parents! The event was held here, at 177 Boston Post Rd., and we covered important automotive basics EVERY driver should know- including: DIY visual inspections, warning lights and what they mean, and Safety & Maintenance checkpoints to keep teen drivers safe. The response was fantastic. We are certainly looking forward to hosting more events like this in the future.


We also recieved a wonderful letter from one of the attending parents, expressing her gratitude! (See below)
